PRESS RELEASE: UK – Genocide Memorial Day 2011

The Islamic Human Rights Commission, IHRC, is proud to present its annual event entitled ‘Genocide Memorial Day’ in remembrance of all man’s inhumanity to man in the perpetration of genocides and genocidal acts.

Two years on from the genocidal acts in Gaza, this event combines the past with the present so that this day is a call not just to commemorate the past but also the present genocidal tendencies together with building a resolve to stop genocides from ever happening again.

This event consists of a variety of short presentations on the world’s many victims. This year we will be covering a number of atrocities including the heart rending plight of the peoples of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the suffering of the African Slave Trade and accounts from the victims of the Jewish Holocaust.
